    I've just pulled the trigger on a 950. Got a BT keyboard and mouse and miracast to try that all out.

    I'm very familiar with most of the windows store because I'm an avid tablet user. I've got some 27 apps and games I want to install already XD

    It seems like the windows 8 stuff, and some windows mobile stuff is hidden from the user on desktop/tablet. Like you can find it via a web search, but not via the store itself on desktop.

    I'd like to know what mobile specific apps, you advise I look into when I set up my phone. Stuff I might not know about coming from desktop/tablet.

    Or even just anything you find super handy.

    Figured I'd get more help from you guys here, than the front page, seeing as all they talk about is people leaving the platform, which ain't much help XD I'm all in on MS services, I use Cortana, edge, outlook, and office.

    For example - best photo filter app?

    Anything like uber, or airbnb?

    Runtastic like apps?

    Whatapp and similar?

    Best car navigation apps?

    I think I'll have more apps on my 950 than my old phone already, but install and setup, in the honeymoon period is part of the fun :)

    I had around 80+, if not 100+ (can't remember anymore) apps installed on my Lumia 1020 - my last Windows Phone - all of which had a particular relevance to me. Here are some apps you may want to look into (I'll try to fetch as much as I can from my organic memory):

    Photo and Imaging:
    - ProShot
    - Adobe Photoshop
    - Touch Retouch (or just Retouch)
    - 123D Catch

    Messaging:
    - Signal
    - Telegram
    - (then there's Viber, Skype, Line, WhatsApp...)

    Navigation and Transportation:
    - Waze
    - Uber
    - Grab
    - Glympse
    - Flightradar24

    Weather: (I have more under this category than any other category, but I'll just mention the best apps)
    - WeatherPro (MeteoGroup)
    - Wunderground
    - TheWeatherChannel
    - Accuweather
    - Prognoza
    - MoWeather
    - RainAlarm

    Education and Languages:
    - Bing Translator
    - Translate (translate.com)
    - DuoLingo
    - Wikipedia
    - WolframAlpha
    - OpenCourse

    News (well, the generic CNN, BBC, Fox...)

    Productivity:
    - TeamViewer
    - Wunderlist
    - Evernote
    - ShareIt

    Utilities:
    - TunnelBear
    - TrueCaller

    Miscellaneous:
    - StarChart
    - Google Authenticator
    - LiveATC


    That's about it. I'm tempted to go back to the Weather category and add some more, but I think those apps would cover most of your needs already.

    I would recommend MyRadar Ad-Free. Gorgeous HD radar and has been well maintained by the author on Win10M. I also have it on my android and iPhone.

    For serious Photo editing, its Fantasia Painter. It goes beyond run-of-the-mill filter-based apps.

    Instagram is there, but I still prefer 6tag, for dark theme, simplicity and familiarity

    You're very active on WC forum, so check out mTalk, if its still available in the store.

    Productivity apps:-
    OfficeLens for document scanning. It's available on other OS but its way better on W10

    Office365, and getting 1TG on OneDrive.

    ... !!

    Oh office lens, yes, great idea (I'm trying to start a small business and those receipts, damn they are annoying)

    I notice the pathfinding on maps can in fact be a little weird. What would be the top navigation app people would recommend?
